kerry, face to face with sergei lavrov. they are both in paris for talks that have been planned before the russian takeover. the talks are so much more urgent. perhaps the most important test yet as to whether dialogue can be used to resolve the crisis in ukraine. in some ways, there have been setbacks. if the us and eu impose sanctions on russia, washington is looking at a series of punitive steps including economic and diplomatic sanctions designed to isolate moscow. no sign either side is backing down from a somewhat polite standoff between russian and ukrainian troops. polite so far. these troops are all armed and the russian forces do remain in effect tiff control of the crimean peninsula. we are covering all the ankles f angles at this hour. elise labott joins us and michael holmes and our chief national security correspondent, jim sciutto, joins us from washington. >>> first, elise, i want to speak with you. i understand john kerry has already had a brief meeting with the russian foreign minister, sergei lavrov. they have had a somewhat decent relationship in the past. they are
minister sergei lavrov before the meeting with kerry. what did he have to say? >> good morning, sergei lavrov speaking in madrid making clear the russian position is far from the american position. moscow believes president viktor yanukovych was ousted illegally. that moscow was forced to act because what happened in kiev could be contagious, criticising the west for supporting the new government in kiev, criticising what sergei lavrov called protesters acting against the ukrainian constitution and russia can't do anything about ordering forces back to bases because they are self-defence forces. that is a critical point. there are thousands of troops across the peninsula blockading bases and ports outside every gate of every military installation, russian, with weapons. they are military uniforms. ukrainian officers said they are clearly russian, they spoke to some. some have identified, the vast majority have not, but they are travelling in russian military vehicles and russian licence baits. >> you are in crimea, where tensions are high on tuesday. where do they remain now? >> they a
was there. also, just ahead of this meeting, sergei lavrov, the russian foreign minister, had flatly denied again that there are any russians troops in crimea. he said, "how can we pull them back? how can we stop an occupation when these are self-defense forces? these are not russian." that really dampened hopes of any meaningful progress. at least they've talked, and at least it has gone on longer than we thought. the other big news, of course, is the e.u. weighing in with a big financial package, offering $15 billion worth of aid. that comes after yesterday's announcement of a billion dollars of -- of loan guarantees from the u.s. the priority, aside from calming down the security situation in crimea, is, of course, to try and stabilize the ukrainian economy which is in a terrible way with the russians turning the screws still more. the finance ministry here have been frank. they say we've got no money left. the coffers are empty, it's been stolen. also in the east, we've seen more violence, clashes between pro-russian protesters and supporters of the ukrainian government. we've had the -
john kerry met with russian foreign ministers sergei lavrov in a session that was intended to be about lebanon. >> the suspending u.s.-russia engagement, and suspending g-8 summit. russia made a choice. we believe it is a wrong choice, the choice to move troops into crimea. >> reporter: on wednesday the european union offered ukraine $15 billion in aid. the same amount russia offered the country before former ukrainian president viktor yanukovych ouster. the e.u. plans to meet thursday about the possibility of sanctions but so far the group has treaded lightly. >> crisis diplomacy is not a weakness but it is more important than ever for us not to fall into the abyss of a military escalation not to blunder into this abyss. >> summited osummitvladimir puts unfazed. the u.s. really has little economic leverage. for example, russia and germany have strong economic ties. germany is the biggest importer of russian gas and oil. some of it comes through pop lines across the ukraine. russian supplies account for 36% of all german gas consumption. german leader angela merkel has taken on a quiet
. >> let's listen to sergei lavrov, the foreign minister. let's listen to what samantha power had to say in response to sergei lavrov. >> military action cannot be justified on the basis of threats that haven't been made or carried out. what is happening today is a dangerous military inveption in ukraine -- invention in ukraine. it's an act of aggression and must stop. >> does he want to ball cannise ukraine and split it up? >> i don't think that's his goal. his goal is - vladimir putin is a great tunist, a great political opportune. >>. there was a government in kiev where they announced the terrorist government, and there's other arguments. they saw the opportunity. he went into crimea, he wanted to go into crimea, but couldn't. the other argument is that he's protecting something that alexander said, and the black fleet, which belongs to the russians. there's a military interest that they are protecting. for him, that's an argument. the major argument - crimea today for vladimir putin is what the doctrine was. he's protecting his territory. his territory he believes. >> for that whol
weapons were done by u.s. secretary of state john kerry and his russian counterparts sergei lavrov. >> reporter: so much mass happened since that handshake took place. they are the relations are at their worse part at any time since the cold war. the syrian government is well behind schedule in getting those deadly agents out of the country. >> some believe the assad government may welcome the fact that world's attention has moved. >> i think president assad is dancing because they know that the u.n. community has their hands full with ukraine, and the pressure will be taken off his back because of all of europe and united states and all the energy is now in ukraine. >> reporter: there could an down side for president assad, too. he relies on russian support in weapons and parts and tanks. but the sanctions against russian could hurt his war machine. >> the israeli military said it found weapons of missiles that have a range of 100 miles. israel has accused iran of supplying missiles to its enemies. >>> a trial for an al-qaeda spokesman wh, he is charged with killing americans afte
, that there are essentially vigilante attacks on russian speakers in the east and south of ukraine. sergey lavrov defended russia's action by saying they're defending the fundamental right to light of -- right to life of the ethnic russians in those areas. is there any evidence that that is the case? >> i would not say that the lawlessness that does exist in some major cities is targeted toward russians or russian speakers. it's very difficult to distinguish who is russian and who is not. people generally here think of themselves as ukrainians and they can hold multiple identities, both as russians and as ukrainians at the same time. the relationship is so close. so i don't think it's targeted in that way. but there is clearly a spike of disorder and lawlessness that everyone is suffering under. >> nicolai petro, thank you so much for joining me. >> sure. >> joining me now is michael mcfaul, just stepped down last week as u.s. ambassador to russia. he's professor of political science at stanford university. ambassador, what is the next step here? it seems that this has escalated tremendously quickly. what
counterpart sergey lavrov this afternoon. from the way kerry later described it the main weapon the u.s. is using against the russians is shame. >> russia's violation of ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity as actually united the world in support of the ukrainian people. russia can now choose to de-escalate this situation, and we are committed to working with russia. together with our friends and allies in an effort to provide a way for this entire situation to find the road to deescalation. >> kerry said that all signs have agreed that a dialogue is the best way to move forward. the u.s. wants to get russia to the table to talk with ukraine's interim government which russia doesn't recognize. but that did not happen today. russia maintains that ukraine's ousted president is the country's true leader. before meeting with kerry, lavrov repeated the assertion that vladimir putin made yesterday, that the troops in ukraine's crimean peninsula are not actually russians at all but instead members of local self-defense groups. that came as a surprise to many people with eyes and/o
counterpart, sergey lavrov. we also had the phone call the president had with angela merkel, but let me start with kerry and lavrov. what do they say to each other? what's critical right now? >> first of all, the fact they are meeting is a good sign. they have developed a cordial relationship. i've been in many meetings with them and the fact they are talking leads open the possibility of this off-ramp that you mentioned and that the president and the administration is trying to provide for putin. i don't think there will be any break ththroughs today, i think it's early for that, but you will hear about the consequences, economic consequences of continuing this and foreign minister lavrov, just the justification for it all. resolution will come later in this crisis. if it comes at all. >> meantime, simultaneously, you have secretary kerry talking to a lot, frankly, of foreign counterparts. here's some of the criticism that we've been hearing. this one from congressman mike rogers. >> right now, putin has set the table in the crimea for negotiations the way he would like them to go, and i thi

.k., the foreign secretary, and also the ukrainian -- he invited sergey lavrov, to join them as part of this budapest amendment, what he was hoping would be part of a diplomatic way forward. but the russian foreign minister declined to attend the meeting, citing scheduling conflicts. even as the u.s. pushes for this diplomatic way forward, it's looking very rough, wolf. >> looking very rough indeed. so he has wrapped up his talks. the u.s., and correct me if i am wrong, it does formally recognize this new interim government in kiev, the government that replaced the ousted president as the legitimate government of ukraine, right? >> reporter: that's right. it doesn't recognize president yanukovych as the president of ukraine any longer, even though that's what the russians are recognizing. secretary kerry met with many members of the new government, members of the parliament and said that the u.s. wants to help them move towards the elections they'll be having. in may, they'll be training, and they also announced a very robust aid package for ukraine to the tune of $1 billion loan gua
administration first four years who went to moscow and met with sergey lavrov and brought that ridiculous staples tv commercial reset button. she pochd that. you may remember it was actually overcharge button as lavrov explained. now hitting retreat button and putin hitting humiliate button. of course she wants to distance herself. hitler comparisons are not necessarily inappropriate. one totalitarian as good as another. hitler wasn't hitler until it started invading countries. >> certainly stronger statements than we've heard from president obama. >> sure. hillary is hard as nails. barack obama is kind of a neophyte when it comes to these matters. lets be honest, president obama has botched every foreign policy entanglement that he's been involved with from libya to egypt to syria to iran. you know, i can see why hillary would want to distance herself from him. >> leslie, should president obama be listening to hillary clinton? >> i was a hillary girl before he got the nomination so that's tough. i want to say because we're women, i think if a woman runs for president she needs to show she can be
and sergey lavrov in paris. that meeting appears to have accomplished exactly zero. angela merkel called putin's moves out of touch, and in the meantime, hillary clinton compared vlad putin to adolf hitler. folks, the mood is tenls. the region unstable, but let's bring it to the table and talk about the political ramifications. bob, i'm going to start with you. your thoughts on everything? >> first, i think the eu stepped forward more quickly than i thought. what the russians have said is they ought to stick to an agreement with the eu that was made by the former president, which will not happen. it's interesting to me that these elections -- somebody will be elected who will be pro-western. the former president who is now hiding out in the soviet union had a deal with the russians to extend their lease on the naval base for about 25 years. it was supposed to be up in 2017. that will not happen. curious to see what putin does. the second thing that strikes me is so far as i can tell, maybe shep can fill us in on this, but i don't think they have moved more troops to the border of crimea
